President Obama held a press conference today that was intended to focus on gun control. Instead, reporters’ first questions were about the fiscal cliff. When confronted about the progress in reaching a bipartisan deal, President Compromise had this to say:

Eloquent? Um, not exactly. In fact, isn’t it a bit … raaaaaacist?

Quick! Quick! Someone get a hold of Fauxcahontas!

Heh.

Meanwhile, about that whole new-tone thing:

  • Blake Waymire

    This is funny on more levels than one. First he rejects a plan originally proposed by Pelosi, and then he uses a racist term. Anyone else finding this funny?

  • traffic_robot

    He needs to stop referring to his Big Book of Cringeworthy Metaphors. No really, stop it. It’s embarrassing.

  • Jack Deth

    Says the man whose lackeys had the locks changed to keep Republicans out of the chamber where Democrats conspired, voted and rammed Obama Care down America’s throat.

    The hypocrisy is palpable!!!

  • NachoCheese (D)

    So the perpetual campaigner-in-chief is calling for non-partisan discussion? Wouldn’t that require him to stop campaigning (an inherently partisan activity)? How about he LEAD for once…show us how it’s done.

    • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Come on , we know that when He says “non-partisan,” that’s partisan Demonrat dog whistle code for “Do what I tell you.”

      /Is it racist for me to say that?

      • NachoCheese (D)

        If you have a (D) after your name you are immune to accusations of “racism”.

  • gracepmc

    What? Elizabeth Warren has time to write for President Revenge?

  • HARP2

    War paint ?

    Hey Barry….Why don`t you tell them if they bring a knife…you`ll bring a gun.

    That`ll show em`

  • R0nin

    So he was there to talk about “gun control”, on which the left has been _incredibly_ partisan (and it appears they’re only getting started)– and he has the nerve to claim that Republicans are being partisan on the “fiscal cliff”, when they’ve been negotiating with him on it?

    Just goes to show that whenever Dems use the term “partisan”, all it really means is “You’re not giving up what you want, to give us what we want!”

    One more proof that there’s no point to bowing to pressure and “working with” Liberals on anything, as they’ll still turn around and accuse you of “partisanship” (like that’s a bad thing). Might as well stick to your guns (can I say that?) if you’re going to be tarred and feathered anyway.

      Republicans see the school shooting as a horrible event.

      Democrats see horrible events as opportunities.

      Simple as that.

  • stuckinIL4now

    What about Obamuh’s condescending comment that the Republicans should “take the deal”–oh yeah, just cave in and give him everything he wants–including the $28 billion in pork he inserted into the Sandy relief bill. That whole press conference was an insult to the American people.

    • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Actually I think we should. Just so that when the oatmeal hits the fan and the whole think turns into the clusterquark catastrophe it will, no-one will be able to point fingers at us as being obstructionist or haters or just opposed to the Sock Puppet because of his skintone. Oh, the Collaborationist Media would still try — but I think that would be an event on a scale to knock all but the thickest voter out there like a baseball bat to the head — pardon the violent allusion! — and thoroughly discredit the notion that they’ve been doing anything close to competent.

  • Silenttype78

    He has no idea how to be a leader.
    Sadly, he really understands how to agitate and pit people against each other.
    He is a pro at it.

    He has turned down everything offered even things endorsed by democrats.

    He wants control of the purse and he is not going to agree to any deal that doesn’t include that.

  • rinodino

    Obama is right… The tribe of NO, or HELL NO, strikes again, smh

    • c2

      I’m a member of that tribe. I’m also a member of the LEAVE ME THE BLANK ALONE tribe.

      • rinodino

        Cool, I’m in the tribe of GET OVER IT, YOU LOST, MOVE ON TRIBE…

        • Cold War Grunt

          What you mean, is “you lost, we won. Roll over, give up your right to be part of a free republican, representative democracy and tell your reps to do whatever we say”.

          Good luck with that.

        • Finrod Felagund

          Yeah, you sure ‘got over’ losing the elections in 2000 and 2004. Liberals continue to whine about those to this day.

        • c2

          I see. You prognuts think you should be able to force yourselves on half of the American people…that we should no longer even be part of the discourse, because we “lost”.

          Well…screw that. Now what are you going to do?

        • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

          The only thing people hate worse than sore losers are sore winners! Sore winners are the real losers. LOSER.

          • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

            But actually, please don’t fret. We intend to extend to Sock Puppet all the support, courtesy, deference, and co-operation that the Demonrats extended to President George W. Bush during the 8 years he was in office.

            /Oh, but we’ll probably refrain from the burnings and hangings in effigy, throwing shoes, throwing blood, etc. We DO have some couth.

          Just like you got over Bush? Did you forget that Republicans also won in the House and all tax matters must originate in that chamber?

          • R0nin

            He’d have to know it before he could forget it…

    • Finrod Felagund

      Racist.

    • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

      If all your friends jumped off a fiscal cliff, would you jump too?

    • redheadgrl

      the only one I see saying “NO” repeatedly is Mr. Obama himself. He has not negotiated at all, only said “NO” to R efforts.

      • R0nin

        EXACTLY!

      You do realize that Harry Reid suppressed a proposal to vote on Obama’s plan, brought forward by a Republican, right? You also remember that separate, but coequal branch of government lesson from third grade, right?…..Assuming you do, it must be quite painful to be so willfully ignorant.

        Great.!! Dave really is a dumbazz..

  • c2

    Our site owner is Mohawk so we talk about this all the time. Some people fairly liberally use stereotypes insulting to American Indians (in part, because most American Indians take a lot of it in stride, I think) – and very often the same people would NEVER use a slur/stereotype to insult an African-American.

    Imagine if any Republican responded and said, “The president needs to put down the crack pipe and bring a serious proposal to the table.”

    That’s what he did right there. And the media will be fine with it.

    • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Watch Braveheart. American Indians aren’t the only ones who use war paint, actually.

      /Not that I’m giving him credit for being smart enough to know that.

    President O’Bonehead deserves to get into heap big trouble for that remark, but I fully expect the media to give Chief Dances-With-Marxists a pass. Needless to say, a Republican making a similar remark would have to cough up heap big wampum to lefty causes as part of the damage control.

  • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

    Ug! Great White Fath — er, Great Darktoned Father in Washington put heap big foot in mouth! Take’um scalp for that!

  • LightSabre

    I watched our “lord and saviour” speak at the news conference today. Absolutely nothing but his typical partisan “blame the Republicans” campaign-type speech. What a scheming, pre-meditated pre-rehearsed speech. Nothing was spontaneous. The same thing he’s done for the past 5 years. Everything with him is an act. Even his speech several days ago about the Newtown shootings. Even the “wipe the tear from his eye” part of it. God, why can’t the vast majority out there see it?

  • sleazyrider

    So is Boehner a paleface?

    Obama is nothing but partisan, he has long past moved past being a clown. Boehner has sent the WH 2 proposals and they were denied. What I take away from this quote is “take my deal, because nothing else will be accepted

  • GaryTheBrave

    Obama wants to go over the cliff. Then, in 2014 when everyone is filing their 2013 taxes, there’ll be such a hue and cry because people actually had to pay than get their usual $3000 refund.

    During the Summer of ’14 the Dems will say we need to do something. Then they will vote on a bill in October that will bring the rates right back to where they are and they’ll be declared as Obama’s tax rate reduction.

    They hate the idea that there is something positive with Bush’s name attached.
